These paint colors will make a small room feel larger than life.
If you’re lacking space, you need to pull out every trick in the book to make your room appear larger. The best way to start is with your wall color, and while white is the obvious choice, it isn’t the only option. From bold and dark to light and bright, these are the best colors for a small space.
Whether you want to go the lighter route or choose a bolder color, these shades are the pick of the litter. Besides, picking a paint color is like choosing a type of chocolate: You can’t go wrong as long as you pick what you like. Save them to your home inspiration board on Pinterest, and read on.
Wild, loud colors, like purple, might actually be better in small spaces. By limiting it to an entryway, you still get a pop of color without overwhelming your house.
It sounds counterintuitive, but if you paint a room dark and then put light furniture in it, it tricks your eye into thinking the room is not only bigger but has more natural light.
EGG CREAM YELLOW
Mudrooms get short shrift. Sunny up a small utility room with Egg Cream, and the family might be inspired to keep things a little neater.
It never hurts to take color cues from the great outdoors, especially when you’ve got views of rolling hills, pretty pastures, and trees galore.
Shadow can be your friend, especially in a small space. Painting a room a dark color camouflages the fact that it’s small. A deep blue like this creates the perception of depth.
Play up the cozy factor of a tiny room with a rich, deep brown. This shade, with a hint of gray, creates intimacy in the small sitting space.
While whites can have undertones of blue, pink, or even green, this is just white in its purest form, without any color. It’s not stark or cold, just light and airy.
Turn up turquoise in a small kitchen. A small camper kitchen goes from blah to easy breezy thanks to a little spray paint on the cabinets.
A super soft shade of pink adds warmth to a small room without overpowering it. Pair it with grays and blacks to make sure it doesn’t feel too frilly.
Choose a light mossy green with a hint of gray in it for a space by a window. In the summer, it’ll blend with the foliage, and when it’s too cold to deal in the winter, it’ll remind you that spring is on the way.
Along with settling on the right furniture and layout for a small interior, believe it or not, paint choices can have a major impact as well. Certain paint colors have a way of making a space feel more expansive than it is, and others are ideal for playing up a room’s cozy vibe.
